With their latest opus Haven, released in 2015 on Napalm Records , symphonic metal masters KAMELOT set new heights with their epic and highly emotional trademark sound: This album became the soundtrack for an unforgettable and monumental silver screen experience delivering dark melancholy, aggressive metal and soul-soothing melodies! Produced by Sascha Paeth, illustrious guests such as Alissa White-Gluz (Arch Enemy), Troy Donockley (Nightwish) and Charlotte Wessels (Delain) gave Haven some extra magic!
As the perfect Christmas gift, KAMELOT have now unveiled a brand new video for the track 'Under Grey Skies', featuring DELAIN's Charlotte Wessels!

DietHeads! First of all, we would like to thank you all for the tremendous support and patience, even though we’ve been mostly silent for the last few years, we’ve always felt your love!
We are now entering the next chapter in this crazy world of CRASHDÏET. With that said, we would like to introduce a new member of the family…

”Dietheads! I’m so fuckin’ excited to get this circus started! I’m here to give you a kickin’ expe
Metal, classic metal, thrash metal... NWOBHM! These are the defining genres that best describe AVENGER. Not a random stab at a description, but an archive of metal styles the band have molded themselves to and related to since their NWOBHM founding over three decades ago, by three members of the cult band BLITZKRIEG.
During this time, AVENGER honed their playing skills and built up a worldwide fan base, enjoying rapturous receptions at festivals and concerts from the Eastern seaboard of America, to the metal hungry fanatics of Europe and down to the tropics of Latin America. From the word go, AVENGER always had this mission statement: get out and put on as intense and as professional show

It's been more than a year since the first rumors spread about a new MONSTER MAGNET album and that the band was preparing to enter the studio in Fall 2016. During the band's European Summer tour it finally got confirmed what the fans around the world were so desperately hoping for to be true. Mastermind Dave Wyndorf stated that the long awaited new studio record is going to be (quote) "full-ahead Detroit-style, early 70s, MC5 and Stooges type of rock". Sounded very promising back then! And now we know... he wasn't lying!
MONSTER MAGNET puts the pedal to the metal with "MINDFUCKER”, their 11th record. “MINDFUCKER" is different, a step forward and a step back at the same time to the almight

Paradiddles, Plectrums and Posers – Website made in Wales, music made worldwide. I’ve had technical difficulties for several weeks in the form of an unreliable laptop – poor ‘Sam’, he’s not a youngster anymore and has been used daily for up to 12 hours and has now finally given up the ghost. I now have a new laptop, which I love already, but I’m sad for Sam as he served me well for many years and also I’ve lost a lot of stuff (all of my music included!).
Anyhow, thanks to the new laptop, I’m now playing catchup.
I thought I’d write about my ‘baby’ Paradiddles, Plectrums and Posers, aka PP&P, a music showcase website for guitar music which I started in December 2011.
